Cortijo de las Flores is a luxurious housing complex located about 5 minutes from Antigua, right next to Ciudad Vieja (one of Antigua's neighboring towns).
The studio apartment is owned and maintained by my family, and we take pride in trying to offer our visitors the best experience possible. The studio apartment offers:
- 2 bedrooms:
* 1 bedroom in the lower level, with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom.
* 1 bedroom in the upper level, with two queen-size beds.

- 1 small garden at the entrance, with a seating area.
The studio has a desktop computer set up, with a wireless router, if you need wifi for other devices. There are also two TVs, one on each room, with basic cable service.
Feel free to send me a message if you want any more info on this place. We do offer as well the two levels separately, if you wish to take advantage of the location but don't need that much space.
The apartment is located within a gated complex, with sufficient parking for up to three cars. It also has lots of green areas and gardens, if you fancy an early stroll.
Interaction with Guests
I usually meet personally with guests to hand them over keys and like to email suggestions about things to do, etc. In rare ocassions, a family member may meet up with you. I'm also always a phone/text/email away, and I do check in via email or text every couple of days, just to make sure your experience is going as smooth as possible.
Inside the complex, you have access to loads of green areas and quiet cobblestone streets to walk around, it's peaceful and relaxing. Outside the complex, Ciudad Vieja is just steps away. Go and discover the second capital city of Guatemala.
The studio is 4.8km from Antigua's Central Park, a 5-minute bus/taxi/tuk tuk ride, or a 25-minute bike trip from Antigua Guatemala. It is also walking distance to Ciudad Vieja, another colonial gem, as well as walking distance to a laundromat, gym, convenience store, and a small shopping plaza.
Other Things to Note
The house has a Jacuzzi on the lower level garden, but we tend to keep it cover (as we hardly ever use it). However, you are free to use it if you wish to, just let me know previously so I can email the instructions! :)
- Smoking is not allowed inside of the house. There is plenty of outdoor space and some cozy lounge chairs if you need to have a smoke outside.
- Please be respectful of the complex neighbors by limiting your noise level after 11pm.
- Check-in and check-out time are flexible, depending on the availability of the studio on the days you enter/leave (this will be agreed previous to your arrival, don't worry).
- Please mind the overall state of the studio and everything on it. We take care of it so you can enjoy it.
The house is very nice, the place is quiet, peaceful and beautiful, full of flowers and very colonial. The house is fully equipped so you don´t have to worry about anything. During my stay Maria was an excellent hostess, she was aware of any situation or question. Thanks for everything Maria!
Maria was a great host and the place was beautiful. Great views of the volcanoes and a great view of Fuego erupting every night. Her communication was prompt and helpful. I can recommend 100%.
El estudio de Maria es excelente por donde se mire: Está situado en un espacio privado con seguridad 24 hrs. que además cuenta con hotel, por lo que se puede desayunar con una maravillosa vista y buen servicio.
La arquitectura y el diseño de los interiores combina la antigua imagen de la zona con los finos acabados de elementos que hacen sentir como en casa al visitante; tiene todo para trabajar, descansar o divertirse: una señal portátil de internet con WiFi que me llevaba a La Antigua conmigo para seguir conectado en mi teléfono; asador; juegos de mesa (dominó, baraja, etc), bebidas y copas suficientes; una pequeña cocina montada con todo lo necesario; dos recámaras bien equipadas, una sala cómoda y suficientes espacios con sillones para leer o simplemente disfrutar la vista de los volcanes que justo queda al frente.
El trato es de primera y siempre están al pendiente de que todo marche bien.
En fin, no se arrepentirán y en la próxima visita a La Antigua, seguro trataré de encontrar disponible el lugar de Maria.
We contacted Maria late in October about using her place over the Christmas holiday. The whole process was very easy. As the date approached. She sent us some information about the house that was very easy to follow and made it very convenient and easy to use.
The house was AWESOME! We were able to completely disconnect. The neighborhood was very quiet. Easy to enter and leave. Security was great (we live in Guate, not always the case). The house allowed us great time to reconnect as a family and rest. The location was great. Close to Antigua, but far enough away to feel disconnected. Love that.
Everything about this process was great. The host, the house, the experience. I have already recommended this house to others. And I will continue to do it.
Hello everybody. I was traveling in Guatemala last week with my family for Christmas. My family and I had an amazing time in Antigua Guatemala. Maria's place was more than perfect, nice, clean and perfectly located. Her father was very kind and helpful. He let us know how to get around both the house and Antigua. I will definitely get back to Guatemala and stay with Maria again.

About me being a AirBnB user...
Not picky when it comes to a place to stay. I just need a decent WC and WIFI, and we're good to go. I love experiencing places as a local, getting to know the neighborhood and straying off the touristy path.
Small boutique hotel located in the same complex as the house. Great breakfasts! Sauna + Massages available. SO GOOD. They also deliver breakfast to the house.Antigua 3012
Ciudad vieja is the first capital city established in the area, prior to Antigua. The central park and cathedral are two blocks from the complex.Ciudad Vieja Sacatepequez
